30 lbs gone

Saturday, July 21, 2007


AS of this morning, I've officially lost 30 lbs! Still have 80 to go...
My cousin Sam's wedding was a blast! We all had so much fun!
I arrived not knowing only that the wedding was being held on a private estate & bride's name was Majli. Within hours, I had been enlisted to help with reception decorations & all things wedding. We all hit it off so well, I was invited along for the bachelorette party. The next day, after Majli & the bridesmaids saw my wedding outfit, they insisted I become an honorary bridesmaid & made the photographer include me in the pictures! (I've attached a picture of the 3 bridesmaids.)

down 22 lbs

Monday, June 18, 2007

My cousin's wedding in Atlanta was a total blast! We had sooo much fun! And San & Majli are just the lovliest couple - I wish them great happiness!

Upon return from Atlanta, my feet/ankles/calves swelled a LOT. Saw the cardiologist & he put me back on Lasix. I literally lost 6lbs overnight! Now I can get my shoes back on & I'm feeling almost back to normal.

Good news is I'm down to 263 - 22 lbs gone! And, at the wedding, I actually felt almost like the cute me again - I even received some flattering attention!

I still have a LONNNGGGG way to go. But, the wedding was a much-needed boost to my confidence.

Progress...

Thursday, June 07, 2007

I have 3 weddings this summer. The 1st one is this weekend in Atlanta (my cousin). The forecast is ~95degrees & I'm singing. So, I've spent a few lunches & evenings trying on various dress styles & sizes. I am happy to report that - not only did I actually find an outfit - but, all of the dresses that fit me were a size smaller than normal. Some of them were even 2 sizes smaller! Yay me!!

Also, I still like my guy & a couple of my male co-workers have made nice comments to me (ie: you look really pretty today). One guy even asked me if I was in love - he said I had the prettiest glow about me lately!

Flying out tomorrow morning, not sure how much computer access I'll have over weekend. Update on Tuesday....

Still Plugging Along

Wednesday, May 30, 2007

Just me... still plugging along.... Nothing fabulous to report... Still just slow & steady, steady & slow.... I definitely think I will be in smaller dress size by time of son's wedding.

My someone special is becoming more real every day!
